This book „offers a platform to understanding China featured urban water management challenges.”

At the beginning of 2019, the twelfth volume of the Future Cities book series was published by Springer Nature. The book, entitled "Urban Water Management for Future Cities - Technical and Institutional Aspects from Chinese and German Perspective", was edited and issued by Stephan Köster (Leibniz University Hannover), Moritz Reese (Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ, Leipzig) and Jiane Zuo (Tsinghua University, Beijing).
It is a joint effort of German and Chinese scientists who present valuable results from their practical research work on the subject of water management for the city of tomorrow. Thus, the book is a very valuable yield of the German-Chinese technical-scientific co-operation within the urban water management research field.
In concrete terms, the book examines and discusses technical as well as institutional and legal aspects in detail. The book builds a bridge between the questions of a secure drinking water supply in the future and concrete suggestions for an improved handling of rainwater in urban areas and in particular how rainwater can be used for urban purposes. The book also addresses in detail technical and institutional issues of wastewater discharge and treatment in the context of comprehensive water protection.

The book essentially originates from the recently completed SIGN joint project, which was also funded by the bmbf.
